Win update service reset to default by itself

I have computers running in XP Pro SP3. Im running an application which often conflicts with windows updates; therefore, I need to turn off automatic update. I disabled and stopped the service but the service changes to automatic by itself. I have asked the network administrator to setup a group policy to disable AU and it didn't work. I then tried to change the registery by following the steps on this link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/892... but the AU still comes back.

I log in to a domain with local administrator privilage, and this happens right after I updated from SP2 to SP3. Virus and spyware is not a concern as these computers dont have access to websites other than the ones that requires the application to run on. Any ideas would be great. Thanks in advance.
